Mary Caponegro is the Richard B. Fisher Family Professor in Literature and Writing at Bard, and has been on the faculty since 2002. She was born in Brooklyn and has lived in Italy, graduating in 1978 from Bard College and going on to receive her master’s degree from Brown University. Author Jonathan Safran Foer has called her “one of the most imaginative, daring, serious and playful writers alive.”
Each fall, members of the Bard admission staff travel around the world to meet with high school students and college counselors to discuss our unique programs in the liberal arts and sciences. While our travel schedules are usually quite busy, we will do our best to accommodate your request to meet. Please keep in mind that interviews are not required and are only granted after an application has been submitted.
Fall travel schedules are posted in the late summer and early fall. Please check back then to see when a Bard representative will be in your area.
